Pittsburgh Social Media Marketing and Twitter Tools

Pittsburgh, PA - After joining Twitter (see previous post) and becoming familiar with the landscape, we’ve started to branch out to our community, both locally and across the globe. This has been thoroughly enjoyable. Connecting with people and their businesses is wonderful and rewarding. Thanks to all of you who follow @blackballonline and to all of you who hopefully will after this post. We follow all of the users who follow us. This is one way we can repay you for all the gracious help and information you have given us.

Now to the business at hand, after joining Twitter, we were alerted to the unbelievable amount of add-ons and applications for this tool. We will list the ones that we have employed as of this post. If you are aware of some glaring omissions please comment or email us at our Pittsburgh SEO website or Tweet at @blackballonline.

#1        Wefollow – http://wefollow.com this site lets you add your Twitter account to 3 directories for user search and inclusion. We added @blackballonline to #seo, #internetmarketing, and #Pittsburgh. The # sign denotes the category tag for that area.

#2        Tweetdeck – http://tweetdeck.com this desktop widget opened up my Twitter Eyes to the possibilities of this tool. Fantastic ability to analyze friends, monitor whenever your username or company is mentioned and so much more. Tweetdeck is a must have in my opinion.

#3        Twellow - http://www.twellow.com the self-named Twitter Yellow Pages allows for business listing placement and directory search. Get your business listed for free.

#4        Twitalyzer – http://www.twitalyzer.com a very powerful tool for analyzing and evaluating the activity of any Twitter user it recognizes and reporting on relative influence, signal-to-noise ratio, generosity, velocity, clout, and other useful measures of success in social media. This is available as a standalone or an add-on to Firefox.

These are the Twitter tools we’ve implemented so far. I’m sure there will be more. If you are looking for a specific Twitter tool, before you write your own API, just visit the Twitter Fan Wiki at http://twitter.pbworks.com. This site is huge and packed full of outstanding tools and info.

All these tools were very easy to implement and very intuitive. If you have problems just tweet us and we’ll do our best to point you in the right direction.
